If you believe the problem you are experiencing is a communication problem or a misunderstanding which has arisen between you and your attorney, you may wish to avail yourself of the services of the Greenville County Bar Association's Client Relations Committee. Participation in this committee is voluntary and must be accepted not only by you but also by your attorney. The function of the Committee involves a process where a Committee member serves as an impartial third party and attempts to facilitate a resolution of problems between attorneys and clients. However, the Committee has no power to investigate attorney conduct; nor does it have any authority to impose sanctions or force settlement of disputes. If you wish to avail yourself of the services of this Committee, you may direct your concerns in writing as follows:

Greenville County Bar Client Relations Committee
